Conversation with Kiran Ahuja, Director of OPM
Friday, December 3rd, 1:00 - 2:30 pm (ET)
The Standing Panel on the Public Service is very pleased to welcome Kiran Ahuja, Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, at the next meeting of the Standing Panel on Friday, December 3 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. After more than two decades in public service and executive nonprofit work, Ms. Ahuja was nominated by President Joe Biden to be OPM Director and was confirmed by the United States Senate on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. Director Ahuja is the first South Asian American and first Asian American woman to lead OPM.
Previously, Director Ahuja served as OPM Chief of Staff from 2015-2017. While Chief of Staff, Director Ahuja led inter-agency efforts to engage federal workers, attract skilled talent into government, and expand opportunities in federal service to every American. She also worked to strengthen OPM’s internal operations as an agency and provide stable leadership at a challenging time. Her deep commitment to OPM’s mission, track record of bringing people together to solve tough problems, and expertise in human capital issues led to her appointment in November 2020 to then-President-Elect Biden’s Agency Review Team as Team Lead for OPM.
During this meeting of the Standing Panel on the Public Service, Director Ahuja will discuss the accomplishments of OPM since the start of the Administration and describe her plans and goals for addressing challenges facing Federal leaders, supervisors, workers, and Human Resource professionals, with a special emphasis on future of work.
